Yoplait Whips! Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)


Congratulations to Janet for winning the Yoplait Whips! Summer Cool Down package! Her number was picked by Random.org. Thanks to everyone for entering!


A little info from the sponsor:
Surprisingly, the delicious taste of Yoplait Whips! can also be enjoyed as a frozen treat! Simply place your favorite Whips! yogurt cup in the freezer overnight and you will have a chilled yogurt indulgence that you don't have to get from the ice-cream truck or at the parlor. So this summer, before you hit the beach, park or your own backyard, don't forget to stock your freezer with Yoplait Whips! (We suggest removing the Yoplait Whips! from the freezer for 5-10 minutes before enjoying).

My review:
Until now, I had never thought to freeze yogurt. And even after I had gotten two cups of the Orange Creme yogurt and put them in the freezer, I was still a little skeptical about how well it would freeze and taste. Surprisingly, it was quite good!

I decided to try it two different ways: one right out of the cup from the freezer and another in a popsicle mold. For the dual popsicle mold, I ended up putting the yogurt on the inside of the popsicle mold surrounded by juice so that there would be a creamy center in the popsicle. Next time I plan to do it the other way around so that there will be more yogurt instead of juice. Of course, I think it would be yummy to make a whole popsicle out of yogurt too.

Despite being frozen, the yogurt was still full of flavor. It was pretty neat since it kind of had the texture of sherbet but creamier. I was a little impatient and didn't let it sit out the whole 5 minutes though, but Belle and Grahm were still able to scoop some out (with only a little difficulty). It stayed frozen the whole time and didn't get runny at the bottom.




The kids love yogurt, so it's nice to have another use for it. By freezing the Whips!, we are able to have a cold, healthy treat during the summer months (or anytime) that is a better alternative to ice cream. I will definitely be freezing them again and think I will try the Chocolate Mousse next.

Now, for my favorite Yoplait product. I would say the refrigerator pack. I've gotten these before and Isaac loves being able to go into the fridge to grab himself a yogurt. As do I :)
For the flavors in the pack I would pick the Blackberry Pomegranate and Cranberry Raspberry option.
